Tim, just stop smoking

Timmy was a young red dragon, one of a clutch of a dozen siblings born of the same batch of eggs. Timmy was the smallest and meekest, the runt of the litter.

As his siblings grew in confidence and power, they learned to fly and to flame, ravage and destroy. But Timmy could not breathe flame, only smoke. His brothers and sisters teased him about this quite a lot.

“You will never amount to anything,” they would say, “for what kind of use is a dragon without fire?”

One day, Timmy began to grow furious from the teasing, and so he huffed and he puffed, and he filled the land with gray. Everywhere his smoke touched, all of the color was leeched away, forever. No color in the trees, or in the sky. No color in the grass, or the waves. No color in his brothers or his sisters, and one by one they each faded away.

Realizing the he was the only color left in the whole wide world, Timmy began to feel quite sad. For now—even though there was no one to tease or make fun of him, there was also no one to love or care for him.

And so with a deep sigh, Timmy began to breathe smoke harder than ever before. He huffed and puffed and smoked and fumed, and the gray smoke swirled around and around him.

Like a white cow giving milk in a snowstorm, Timmy disappeared.

Uh oh, this will suck

So I think this might be bad. We will see. At least I ate first, so that should help. But what I don’t have is a good plan yet. Have to see what pops out. Should I have tried a rhyme or a song?

Well so far it is a mess! (Hold on, my cat needs love.)

Four score and three plus four years past, our dads brought forth on this land, a new state, birthed of free, and true to the plan that all men are made same.

Not quite the same bang for your buck. Speech script by this mode not good. Still, there is a charm to this mode, when it is not too crude. Sounds like the speech of that friend of George from “Of mice and men”, a bit.

Too bad I had no plan. So keep this short this morn, will I.
